Water 3.0: a New Series of Liquid Coolers from Thermaltake

Thermaltake, a viable designer of versatile PC hardware components, has recently unveiled its new series of liquid cooling systems. Entitled simply Water 3.0, the products constitute themselves as all-in-one cooling solutions with high efficiency and low noise level. The series is introduced by three models, — Water 3.0 Performer, Water 3.0 Extreme and Water 3.0 Pro, — targeting different customer groups.

All liquid coolers included into the lineup consist of a pump integrated into a waterblock, a copper base, a couple of 120 mm fans, and leak-proof pipes which protect the liquid from leakages or evaporation. Heatsink design is individual for each of the models. One should mention that Thermaltake delivers its liquid coolers with dedicated Windows-compatible software for the monitoring and adjustment of all key parameters, including fan rotational speed, liquid thermal conditions, and pump efficiency.

The first model, Water 3.0 Performer, features 120 mm heatsink of a …

Meet Small-Sized QC5000M Mainboard from ASRock

ASRock enters the mainboard market with a new micro-ATX solution, entitled QC5000M. The greenhorn takes Kabini platform as the basis, featuring AMD A4-5000 hybrid processor (28 nm) with 4 Jaguar cores and 1.5 GHz clock frequency. The APU is accompanied by two slots for one-channel DDR3-1600 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB) and an integrated AMD Radeon HD 8330 graphics (500 MHz clock frequency, compatibility with DirectX 11.1 standard).

The implemented APU boasts 15 W TDP only, requiring a small-sized heatsink for efficient cooling. The model takes power via 24-pin ATX connector and is based on AMD A68 chipset. It is equipped with a single PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot, a pair of PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots, and the same amount of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports.

Network and audio facilities are represented by Realtek RTL8111GR Gigabit Ethernet controller and 7.1-channel Realtek ALC887 codec respectively. Additionally, the PCB is furnished with ELNA sound capacitors. The rear side of the motherboard …

Deepcool Announces a Pair of Maelstrom Liquid Coolers

Deepcool has extended Maelstrom lineup of liquid coolers with two new models – the 120T and the 240T. The key distinction between the pair is the amount of 120 mm fans employed (one or two). Both come equipped with red LED backlights and show compatibility with the majority of update Intel & AMD platforms. The maximal supported CPU TDP level makes up 140/150 W.

Deepcool Maelstrom 120T comes with a single fan, whereas its companion, 240T, features a couple of fans, based on fluid bearing with 50.000 hours MTBF. The units run at 1800 RPM, creating up to 83.64/167.28 CFM and 17-34 dB of noise (depending on the model).

Both coolers employ a ceramic pump (70x85.6x31.5 mm), estimated for 120.000 hours of fail-proof operation & running at 2400 RPM. The pump features a copper base with micro-channels, connected with solid rubber hoses and an aluminum heatsink. The new-comers are linked to the system by means of 4-pin connectors.
